The 2011 British Informatics Olympiad

If you last participated prior to 2008 you should take careful note of the dates for this year's content.

BIO 2011 poster BIO 2011 will take place November - December 2010 and March 2011. The competition is open to all students in full-time pre-university education in mainland Britain, and involves solving problems against the clock, using nothing more than pen, paper and a computer.

The BIO consists of three stages. The first is a 3-hour test, the British Informatics Olympiad, which takes place in schools during November-December 2009. This involves solving a range of problems using a computer. The second stage is the final, which will be held in Cambridge from 25-27 March 2011. The top four finalists will make up the team to travel to the 2011 International Olympiad in Informatics, hosted by Thailand.

As well as the possibility of winning a medal the team will enjoy VIP treatment and get to socialise with contestants from over 80 different countries that will take part.
